The club continues to express its heartfelt wish that everyone keeps safe and well during the Coronavirus pandemic, and our thoughts go out to anyone who is ill or suffering the symptoms of the virus.
We repeat our call-out to members who may need help and/or are struggling with food deliveries to get in touch. Details are already on our website.
We also want to add our thanks to those workers in the NHS, emergency services, supermarkets and other essential services, who are at the forefront of the battle to stem this horrendous infection and support the most vulnerable and needy.
In the hope we can provide some light relief, we are aiming to post a series of cricket-related articles on our social media sites to keep people entertained during these tough times, and bring a smile or two if we can.
Already, we have posted on our Facebook and Twitter feeds some coaching videos to interest junior and senior players alike.
We are also planning to publish some cricket teasers, reproduce reports of past games, and print old team photographs on our website, which might spark fond memories, highlight the friendships and camaraderie, and demonstrate the richness and fulfilment this fantastic game has to offer.
And that goes not just for our players and past players, but our valued volunteers, tea ladies, scorers, supporters and parents.
We are now seeking players and ex-players to give us an insight into their cricketing life – much like a “player profile”.
We have 18 questions (set out below) for people to answer. Once completed, they should email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and provided we get a good response, they will be posted on our website on a regular basis. We already have photos of many current players, but please attach one to your submission if there is a picture you’d prefer us to use.
There is no real limit on length (except our aim is not to supply insomnia remedy material), and remember it is for family consumption. Juniors, just because you might not have played the game for long, it does not rule you out. Send us your answers too!
Our aim is to make people get into the habit of visiting our website for some virtual company and togetherness, whilst the Government restrictions are in place.
